Always wanted to try Bubba's-Q and had some free time at lunch today. Arrived around noon and the place was pretty much empty. Not a good sign. I have had the luck of traveling the country for business and enjoying many fantastic BBQ places. I am a BBQ snob. These best way to test a BBQ location is by their... More

Wife and stopped in at lunch time for the "famous" boneless ribs.(for carry out) First trip to this restaurant to see what the hype was all about. Well... Ever go to Burger King and be told they were out of Whoppers? No boneless ribs available. I guess they only serve them at dinner time. The baby backs that were suggested... More

My wife and I went here for lunch this afternoon, we both had the chicken sandwich. It was fine, the BBQ sauce was very good, that is all I have to say. The food is just good, meh nothing too special. The place itself is not as outdated as I expected, well it is not really outdated at all, just... More

We stopped here after knowing about the place having seen it on Shark Tank. We were not disappointed at all. The Boneless Ribs were outstanding. Not a lot of sauce so you could add the amount you wanted.

I guess I live in a different world, for I never heard of this "world famous" place until I visited it. I enjoyed the boneless rib sandwich and the BBQ Brisket burger, but IMO it was not outstanding or extraordinary. The sports memorabilia on the walls were interesting, but not being from the area I was not familiar with Bubba... More

We all love Bubba's! The philosophy is simple. They serve you a big plate of food for a fair dollar. Casual, can be noisy. Staff is kind and does a good job. The only thing that happened to me there once was to go containers being put on the table before we were done. They were doing it all over.... More

Was hesitant to visit due to mixed reviews.... But glad we made the decision to go!!! Was quickly seated on a busy afternoon. The waitress, Alexandra, quickly took our order and was very helpful. We had the MVP and sub out for the famous boneless ribs. I am a big eater and there was plenty of food for the three... More

The food is good. But the lunch plates we got could not have been more basic. It's just not what it should be. The service is suboptimal at best. It's not unusual to see someone walking out mad. Bubba is a great guy and has been around for a long time. I keep wishing it was better.

Al Bubba Bakers talks a big game on TV interviews and he certainly plays to win that game! The boneless ribs were unbelievably good! I recommend a double helping of the best baked beans ever! The beans were loaded with meat and cooked just right. If you are from Boston and think your Mama makes good Boston baked beans then... More
